Register Now! The Business of Personal & Public Data - June 4

Our digital fingerprints are widespread and they are valuable.  Creating and protecting personal information on the web is a growing new industry as our past, present and possibly future personal profiles are fair game for review, comment and syndication on the Internet. 

The last decade saw the explosion of e-commerce.  Sir Francis Bacon said that, “Knowledge is power” and this current age of information commerce is discovering how invasive, pervasive and persuasive it can be.  At the same time, information transparency provides opportunities for new value chains to be created that can potentially benefit us as consumers, professionals and citizens.

Here is a chance for a unique look “behind the curtain” to explore the information commerce industry.  Learn about the new business models built around value-enhanced personal and public data on the Internet, information ownership, management of privacy and remediation options.  Hear directly from the providers of these services about what they are doing to create value, build business and sustain consumer confidence.

 Join us for a spirited discussion that will explore:

  • The state of the digital information industry, its current position and future opportunities
  • Data ownership - who owns data about us, said about us or inferred about us?
  • Privacy - what is "data privacy"? What can we expect?
  • Accuracy, remediation, recourse and regulation around our data - issues and opportunities
  • Which business models, strategies and companies are likely to prosper inside this industry
